HIGHWAY SURVEYOR'S REPORT. 



To the Selectmen of the Town of Andover — 

Gentlemen : I herewith present my report on Highways 
and Bridges. 

Work was commenced April 3rd. on Woburn Street. It 
was graded from Mr. Torr's to the house of Mr. T. Dennie 
Thomson. 

Beginning where the macadam was left in 1896 on South 
Union street near the residence of Joshua Stott, we next 
macadamized 700 feet to the electric railroad track. There 
are 200 feet more to be done and then there will be a ma- 
cadam road from the Shawsheen river to the Lawrence line 
on both streets. 

We next gravelled the road from the Miller place in Frye 
village toward the West church as far as the house of 
George Cochran, and also from the fountain to the West 
church cemetery. Two culverts were re-laid here. 

We then graded Whittier street from Summer street to 
Elm. Main street was gravelled from the Lowe place to 
the Square, and from School street to the end of the electric 
road. I macadamized Main street from Chestnut street, 
765 feet south on the east side of the railroad track. Five 
hundred feet of macadam was laid near the Weld place. 

Repairs have been made on Morton, School, Bartlet, 
Phillips, Essex, Central, Railroad, Salem, Summer, Marland, 
Lowell, Ridge, Mineral, Cuba streets and on Maple avenue. 

Gutters have been cleaned out in every street in the 
Centre and in Ballardvale. Have tried to keep all the 
crossings clean around the square. A new Concrete cross- 
ing has been made across Bartlet street in front of Punchard 
School, for the school children. 



51 

In Ballardvale, repairs have been made on nearly every 
street. The iron bridge has been replanked and painted at 
a cost of $370. This I call cheap considering the beautiful 
carving. 

Some repairs have been made in the Cape District and 
some in Scotland. 

The road from the Carruth place to the Tewksbury line 
has been repaired using the road machine; also from Boyn- 
ton's past the school -house to Tewksbury line, and from 
Main road to the school house road, and from Barnard's 
corner to the Drisko place. Much more would have been 
repaired with the machine if the dry weather had not pre- 
vented. 

Eighteen culverts have been relaid, one of which cost 
$200. 

Thirty two hundred feet of macadam have been made at 
Haggetts Pond, and 722 feet of railing put in place. Near 
the Chapman place, we put 424 feet of railing and 200 feet 
on River street in Ballardvale. 

Two new streets have been built with macadam, Barnard 
street, 400 ft., and Avon street, 800 ft. On Barnard street 
the sidewalk was concreted, edgestones put in, and the 
gutter paved the entire length. 

At the foot of the hill below Peter D. Smith's, we laid 
300 feet of macadam road. Including the new streets, and 
the state highway, this makes the sum total of macadam 
road, 10625 feer, or a trifle more than two miles. 

All the streets have been kept free from stones, and all 
the bushes were mowed except those in the south eastern 
part of the town. I was informed that the money was ex- 
pended, or these would have been cut. 

Repairs on sidewalks were made as follows: Trees were 
cut near the Wood's place and cleared away, and the side- 
walks put in order for concrete. This cost nearly half the 
appropriation. The sidewalks have been repaired on Salem, 



52 

Summer, Phillips, Morton, Pearson streets. A new side 
walk was laid on Summer street from Welch's to the Col- 
lins' place. The following sidewalks have been concreted : 
the west side of High street, from the square to Harding 
street; Park street from Napier's to Whittier street ; 
Morton street from Main to School street. Edgestones have 
been placed on the corners of each street where the concrete 
was laid. 

A concrete gutter has been made from Daly's store to 
Pearson street. Concrete gutters have been repaired on 
Main and Pearson streets. In Ballardvale, we laid a con- 
crete walk from John Dearborn's to the depot, and from F. 
G. Hayncs' the entire length of High street. 

All the concrete was put in by Bailey & Chase with the 
exception of Morton street. This was laid by Henry Cun- 
ningham as a sample walk. 

The selectmen contracted for a half mile of btate road, 
employing me to build the same. I built three quarters of 
a mile in ^evea weeks, and did not exceed the appropriation 
for the half mile. This was satisfactory and has been ac- 
cepted by the state, and I think Mr. Goldsmith's report will 
show a balance for the town.

OVERSEERS OF POOR. 



We consider ourselves fortunate in still retaining the ser- 
vices of Mr. and Mrs. Burnham ; the house is a model of 
neatness. Quite a large proportion of the inmates are old 
people who require considerable attention, and Mrs. Bum- 
ham seems specially adapted to care for the old ladies under 
her charge. Those unfortunate people seem happy and con- 
tented and look upon Mrs. Burnham as their best friend. 

The management of the farm under Mr. Burnham con- 
tinues to show a marked improvement. The receipts from 
the farm the past year were $3,159.61. The report of the 
State Inspector classes the management and care of the in 
mates one of the best in the state. 

We would invite the people of the town, both men and 
women, to visit the Almshouse and note its condition and 
the provision made for the care and comfort of the inmates.

CEMETERY COMMITTEE 



The Trustees of Spring Grove Cemetery herewith submit 
their annual report with statement of receipts and expendi- 
tures for the year ending January 1, 1900. 

A new plot of about twelve acres connected with the older 
portion of the cemetery has been plotted for burial purposes 
and much work performed to prepare the same for the sale 
of lots. 

It is thought best, by your committee, that many of the 
lots, in the newly plotted grounds, be sold for such an 
amount as shall provide for the perpetual care of said lots, 
the increased amount to be held by the treasurer of the town 
in accordance with Chap. 186, Acts and Resolves of 1884. 
The walks and drives have been well cared for and the 
newer grounds cleared of debris. The plan of this part of 
the cemetery is well arranged for the purposes intended for 
its use, and in the years to come Andover will become pos- 
sessed of a cemetery that for natural beauty and artificial 
adornment will be a credit to the town. Your committee 
would recommend the usual appropriation of $300 and the 
proceeds from sale of lots, for the care of the cemetery for 
the coming year.

AUDITORS' CERTIFICATE. 



We have examined the accounts of the several Town Of- 
ficers and find them correctly cast and satisfactory vouchers 
for all payments made. 

The Town Treasurer has on deposit in the Andover 
National Bank and cash on hand $294.64 and $791.95 to 
the credit of the water loan, and $1600.24 to the credit of 
the sewer loan.

PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT. 



Herewith is presented an account of receipts and disburse- 
ments for the year, showing a balance of 87 cents unex- 
pended. 

On account of the amount used in setting out new 
trees and pruning old ones, on the highways, the Commis- 
sioners have been unable out of the appropriation for the 
year, to make the contemplated change at the gravel bank 
at Carmel. This they intend to put into shape in the early 
spring. The work at Carmel is generally so far advanced 
as not to require much expenditure; though much money 
might be spent in cutting off dead limbs, and in kindred 
work. But as the woods are today, no great sum of money 
is needed to keep them in good condition and make moder- 
ate improvements. The commissioners therefore for gen- 
eral purposes ask for $500 for the current year. 

In accordance with the vote passed at the last annual town 
meeting the Commissioners have bought the Richardson 
field and the Berry lot adjoining, at a less price than was ap- 
propriated for the purpose. As some filling is needed on 
these lots, the Commissioners will allow ashes, loam and 
suitable filling materials to be deposited there under their 
directions, but no tin cans, papers, or offensive materials will 
be allowed there. As the street department each year col- 
lects a large amount of good material for top-dressing, the 
Commissioners ask that such amount of it as they may need 
may be put at their disposal. 

Respectfully submitted, 
ALBERT POOR, ) p , 

CEIARLES L. CARTER, \ n ^ am . 
ARTHUR BLISS, Commissioners.

THE BARNARD PRIZE FUND. 

Prior to the competition for the Barnard Prizes in June but one divi- 
dend, $25.00, had been received from this fund. Mr. J. W. Barnard gen- 
erously contributed $15.00 to make up the amount to $40.00, which was 
distributed. It is reasonably sure that the fund will yield $40.00 per 
annum hereafter. 

The investment continues in the stock given by Mr. Barnard, namely, 
10 shares of Union Pacific Railroad Company's preferred stock.

MEMORIAL HALL. 



TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 
OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES. 



The event of special interest in the affairs of Memorial 
Hall, during the past year, lias been the important step 
made by the Trustees toward the realization of the pro- 
visions of the Will of the late John Cornell. It may have 
seemed to some that the enjoyment of this gift has been a 
long time in reaching the people of Andover. But it is by 
this delay that the Trustees are now able to present to 
the Public, the pictures of the Cornell Legacy under con- 
ditions that render them at the same time accessible and 
useful. 

The accumulated interest of the Cornell fund, received 
some six years ago, supplied the means by which the un- 
finished attic of the Memorial Hall has been shaped into the 
beautiful room, furnished, warmed, and properly lighted, 
that now holds the beginning of an Art Collection, which 
the Trustees hope will prove a centre of continually growing 
interest, drawing to itself, year by year, a few new acquis- 
itions, and availing itself in some measure, of the improve- 
ments in the arts of reproduction that the future may de- 
velop. The unexpended part of the fund, available for such 
a growth, will ensure the realization of this plan for some 
years. When there is no longer a place for all our pictures 
in the Art Room, the other apartments and corridors of the 
building will be, gradually, furnished with them. 



119 

In response to a request, signed by a number of our citi- 
zens, the Trustees have tried for a full year the experiment 
of opening the Reading Room on Sundays, during the after- 
noon and evening hours. A careful account, kept by the 
Librarian, of the attendance, shows so small a number 
availing themselves of the privilege, that the Trustees do not 
feel warranted in continuing the Sunday opening longer. 

For further interesting statistics we refer the reader to 
the report of the Treasurer and the Librarian.

REPORT 

OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of Andover : 

The Board of Public Works herewith submit their first 
annual report, for the year ending Jan. 10, 1900. 



SEWERS. 



Cost of sewer construction previous to 1899, 875,700.33 
*' " " " during 1899, 32938.43 



Cost to date, $108,638.76 

Sewer bonds authorized and sold, $110,000.00 

Number of house connections made previous 

to 1899, 55 

Number of house connections made during 1899, 151 

Total to date, 206 

Sewers have been completed on all streets of the system 
adopted by the Town, excepting parts of Abbott, Central, 
Chestnut, Elm, School streets and Walnut avenue, and the 
whole of Phillips street. The estimated cost to construct 
these is $17,366.77. 



The firm of C. H. Eglee Co. having dissolved, Mr. Loring 
N. Farnham completed the contract to our entire satisfaction. 

MAINTENANCE. 

The care and maintenance of the system, having been per- 
formed in connection with the construction of new work, the 
expense has been small. By combining the two systems, 
water and sewer, the maintenance account will be less than 
if run separate, but it is hardly possible that it will be re- 
duced much as the sewers will necessarily call for more for 
running expenses in the future. 

Satisfactory settlements have been made with all parties 
but two, where sewers were laid in private property and the 
proper rights secured for the Town's protection. As the 
Town needed the land on Park street for other purposes it 
became necessary to move the shop, which has been used by 
the Waterworks for several years, to some other location. 
A lot was purchased of Hardy & Cole and the shop removed 
thereto. There is included in the lot bought sufficient land 
for the storage of pipe and other materials, also part of the 
spur track, on the premises, which makes it very convenient 
for the loading and discharging of heavy f'rieght. 

SEWER ASSESSMENTS. 

It was voted by the Town that one quarter of the cost of 
the sewer system should be borne by the Town, and three 
quarters by the abuttors or those directly benefited. By 
the authority conferred by the act of incorporation your 
Board have finally adopted the following plan of assessments 
for benefits received from the system of sewers. Three 
quarters of said cost shall be assessed upon the estates 
directly benefited wherever the sewers shall be laid, by the 
frontage and area plan combined. Yiz. Fifty (50) cents to 
be assessed on each foot of lot frontage, of estates on any 
street or way wherever a sewer is constructed, five (5) mills 
per square foot upon the area of said estates extending back 



to a depth of one hundred and twenty (120) feet from the 
front of the same. Upon all corner lots assessments for lot 
frontage shall be levied as before stated, upon the whole 
frontage of such estates which abut on the street where a 
sewer is first laid, upon the other street or streets or ways 
upon which such corner lots or estates abut, an exemption, 
as may be determined by the Board of Public Works, of not 
exceeding sixty (60) feet of the frontage assessment shall be 
made on such streets or ways : and the assessments before 
provided shall be levied on all the remainder of the frontage 
on such streets or ways. 

Upon such estates as shall receive direct benefits from the 
sewer that have no assessable lot frontage, and not located 
within one hundred and twenty (120) feet of a street or way, 
such an equitable charge shall be made for entering the 
sewer as may be determined by the Board of Public Works 
for the benefits received therefor. The Board would recom- 
mend that whenever extensions to the system are made, the 
property abutting and directly benefited, shall be assessed 
at the same price and in the same way as the foregoing 
property.

If the water furnished the Town for its public buildings 
alone was paid for at the cost of pumping it, the receipts 
would exceed the expenditures, so practically the water 
works are more than self supporting without taking into ac- 
count at all the fire protection afforded by nearly two hun- 
dred hydrants, and the water used to flush the sewers and 
other purposes. 

Several years ago the Town took possession of two islands 
in Haggetts pond to prevent pollution of the water from 
campers who frequented them. The owner or owners were not 
known at the time. The ownership was established this year, 
the Town paid for them -1436.50 and a title to the property 
secured. Construction work has been very light this year. 
The total length of new mains laid was 1087.5 feet. The 
trough formerly near the corner of Eailroad and Central 
streets, was moved across the river to the corner of Andover 
street and the road leading to West Parish Church. As the 
amount of money available for construction purposes is prac- 
tically exhausted, your board will ask for a small appropri- 
ation for that purpose. It will probably not require a very 
large amount any one year as no great extensions or any 
great call in this line of construction is looked for, for some 
time. Mr. John E. Smith was elected superintendent of 
both departments last spring, and also the sewer construction 
for this year has been under his personal supervision. We 
refer you to his report accompanying this for a detailed 
account of work done in the two departments and other in- 
formation which may be of interest. 

The efficiency of the water system for the past ten vears 
is already established. It has affored an abundance of water 
for all the purposes for which it was intended every day 
since it went into commission. While the sewer system is 
yet in its infancy it has thus far been a success and will no 
doubt, like the water system, accomplish the purpose for 
which it was designed. Both are of great value to the health 



9 

of the Town, and are designed to be a lasting benefit to 
future generations. 

Very Respectfully, 

JOHN H. FLINT ^

Note. — Since writing the above report a petition has been 
received from land owners on Phillips street requesting the 
construction of a sewer therein. This construction will of 
necessity be required within a few years and the present ex- 
igencies of the case would seem to demand that it be built 
this coming season, as the new dormitory in course of erec- 
tion by the Trustees of Phillips Academy will increase the 
population of an already polluted section by about one hun- 
dred. To avoid the necessity of coming before the Town for 
small bond issues from year to year, your Board would rec- 
ommend that the Town authorize the issue of twenty thous- 
and dollars of sewer bonds. These bonds will not be sold 
except as the proceeds shall be required.

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. 



To the Board of Public Works: 

The total length of Water Mains laid during 1899 was 
1087.5 feet, 370 feet of 8 inch and 717.5 feet of 6 inch pipe. 

One hydrant and three valves have been added to the sys- 
tem. The total number of public hydrants now in service 
is 194. Pipe has been laid as follows. 

Main street from Bancroft's Road, 370 feet of 8 inch, 9.5 
feet of 6 inch pipe, 1 hydrant. 

Haverhill street from David Middleton's, east 215 feet of 6 
inch pipe. 

To Shop in Pipe Yard, 187 feet of 6 inch pipe, 2 valves. 

To Sewer Pump House, 121 feet of 6 inch pipe, 1 valve. 

24 applications for service pipes were received and 26 ser- 
vices have been laid, 1 service has been discontinued. The 
total number of applications to date is 871, total number of 
services in use 845. total number of meters 616. 

Two Stand pipes for Street watering have been erected 
for the Street Department and one for private parties. 

To insure the safety of the 8 inch pipe crossing the river 
on Central street, the drinking trough formerly located at 
the junction of Central and Railroad Streets was moved 
across the river, to the corner of Central and Mineral streets.

Owing to changes made by the Town in the Yard on Park 
street, it became necessary for this department to find 
another location for yard and pipe shop. By vote of the 
Town a lot of land bordering on the B. & M. R. R. was pur- 
chased from Hardy & Cole and the shop moved thereto. 
The lot obtained is admirably adapted for the purpose, con- 
taining as it does a spur track and ample room for storing 
both Water and Sewer pipes. The appropriation made by 
the Town, $3000, was insufficient to properly do all of the 
work required, the balance $183.93 has been charged to 
Sewer construction. 

Contracts for Sewer construction were made early in the 
season, the work was completed early in September. 

Contracts were awarded as follows, 

Akron pipe, Portland Stoneware Co. 

Rings and Covers, Mechanics Iron Foundry. 

Construction, Loring N. Farnum. 

Cement was purchased from Waldo Bros. Crushed stone 
and gravel were furnished by day labor. The location, size, 
and length of sewers and underdrains, constructed during 
1899, are 

Sewers.

*85feet laid in separate trench. 

This section owing to the large amount of ledge en- 
countered was expensive to build, no special difficulties were 
met and owing to the very dry season, tight work was easily 
obtained. The work of the Contractor, Loring N. Farnum, 
has been very faithfully done, he has willingly done every- 
thing required of him, settlement with him was on the regu- 
lar estimates, no question of the meaning of the specifica- 
tions or of extras was brought forward by him, at any time. 

The filtration area, Blow off Beds, Pump House and 
Pumps, have been completed as designed, with the exception 
of Filter Bed No. 11, which is left a foot below grade. This 
work was done under the direction of McClintock & Wood- 
fall as engineers. 

The necessary engineering for preliminary and construct- 
ion work, assessment and record plans, for the sewe:' con- 
struction for the year, has been done by employees of this 
Department. In addition, preliminary surveys, plans and 
estimates have been made for that portion of the system 
which has been accepted by the Town, which has -not yet 
been constructed. General assessment surveys and plans, 
showing the assessable frontages and areas for the same have 
also been made.

In addition to the regular work of this Department, two 
new streets have been laid out, grades established and 
stakes set. Stakes have been set whenever requested for the 
Highway Department. 

A variety of small engineering jobs have been done for 
the Selectmen, in all cases record plans have been made 
and are on file. 

House connection work has been under the direct super- 
vision of George E. Hussey, who reports as follows. 

k 'The work of connecting houses with tbe main sewer be- 
gan May 11th, and continued to Nov. 7th., during that time 
151 connections were made, through which the sewage from 
169 buildings is drained. These connections make a total 
length, laid during tin; year, of 9659 feet, the total cost was 
$-4885.81, an average of 45 cents per linear foot. In this 
construction, litis feet ol iron extra heavy -oil pipe, M'.'l 
feet of akron pipe were used and ten manholes built. Ap- 
plications received during the year, 1 ( >-. Number of house 
connections made 151. 

Total number of applications to date 212. Total number 
of house connections, ii06." 

Maintenance. 

Notwithstanding the extreme dryness of the season, there 
has never been the least danger of a scarcity of water, nor 
can there be for many years to come, our present supply 
even in dry seasons will probably be sufficient for a popu- 
lation of at least forty thousand, our storage capacity can 
then be increased by 90 million gallons, at a trifling cost. 

The care of the sewer system has caused very little outlay. 
the cost of operating the automatic pump on the low level 
system has been merely the cost of pumping about 1000 
gallons of water per day. there are at present however but 
few connections on that portion of the system. Mr George 
Mander has been in charge of the filter beds and has per- 
formed the duties in connection therewith in a very satis- 



43 

factory manner, owing to his being employed as foreman on 
construction of the beds, the cost of maintenance has been 
less than can reasonably be expected in future years. Both 
water and sewer systems are in good condition, the nrices of 
coal and materials have advanced to such an extent that the 
cost of maintenance for the coming year will be materially 
increased, I would therefore recommend a larger appropri- 
ation. 

I have in previous water reports referred to the matter of 
permanent grades for our streets, this question deserves 
careful consideration by the Town. The addition of about 
175 manholes in the streets makes it of greater importance 
than ever to this department that grades should be perma- 
nent, to obviate the necessity of raising or lowering covers 
to fit changes, or of digging through from 6 inches to a foot 
of frost to reach manholes or gate boxes. The grades 
adopted by the Town in 1885, have not been adhered to, in 
fact so many changes have been made that the plans made 
at that time are of no further use. as the expense of re- 
grading where changes have been made would entail an un- 
warrented outlay. Some method should be devised, or sys- 
tem put in operation, at an early date to overcome this dif- 
ficulty, otherwise the Town will be at a continual unneces- 
sary expense and results will be unsatisfactory. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.
